Pregnant workers protection passes

The state House agreed Tuesday to send over to the Senate a bill that would prohibit employment discrimination against pregnant workers.

House Bill 179 also requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for pregnant women.

It passed on a 51-14 vote picking up some bipartisan support and how heads to the Senate with just four days left in the session.

Three Democratic representatives are sponsoring the proposed Pregnant Worker Accommodation Act: Gail Chasey and Deborah Armstrong of Albuquerque and Joanne Ferrary of Las Cruces.
